I love this vintage Labor Day image since it shows the cornucopia full of fruit and vegetables. So true.
We have Red Haven peach trees and they are so delicious this year.
So far I've made peach jam.
And I used Calli's recipe for fresh peach pie. Before I could take a photo of my pie it was completely gone. It was really delicious so I may make another one. The only thing different than Callie's instructions was I used a can of peach nectar instead of water. Go see how pretty Calli's pie is; it's much more beautiful than mine.I also spent this Labor Day weekend cutting some 2.5" squares from my Denyse Schmidt fabrics (and a few others thrown in). This is my cutting table after messing around with those squares.On my design plate I laid out one of the blocks I'm going to sew. I really love patchwork. I guess I'm just a square at heart. I've made several mosaic quilts like this one above. And I thought it would be fun to make a new quilt with the mosaic idea. My new quilt will be sashed with a light gray quilter's linen.
I have 3 mosaic blocks put together so far. This is my first block....
....and the 3rd block. I'll see if I can squeeze in some non-peach time today and sew up my 4th (the one on the design plate) block and maybe a few more.
I hope you are all having a productive or restful labor day, what ever your plan may be.
